Alasdair,

After further testing I've hit a lockdep trace.  My testing was with
handing over on the same device.  I had the snapshot (of an ext3 FS)
mounted and I was doing a sequential direct-io write to a file in the
FS.  While writing I triggered a handover with the following:

echo "0 50331648 snapshot 253:2 253:3 P 8" | dmsetup reload test-testlv_snap
dmsetup resume test-testlv_snap

With that handover worked fine (with no IO errors), but the following
lockdep resulted (some "snapshot_*" tracing was added for context):

snapshot_ctr
snapshot_ctr: found snap_src
snapshot_presuspend

dmsetup/1827 is trying to acquire lock:
 (&md->suspend_lock){+.+...}, at: [<ffffffffa00678d8>] dm_swap_table+0x2d/0x249 [dm_mod]

but task is already holding lock:
 (&journal->j_barrier){+.+...}, at: [<ffffffff8119192d>] journal_lock_updates+0xe1/0xf0

which lock already depends on the new lock.


the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:

other info that might help us debug this:
